Coat Hanger fairy wings

Okay, this is a classic that everybody else except me already knew how to do. I'd always hear people say that they made fairy wings out of coat hangers and old tights, but I didn't really get it. Luckily, when Elisabeth decided to be a butterfly for Halloween, I found this great video tutorial. Ours aren't done yet, but they're looking pretty good so far!

Recycled Halloween Projects

As I perused the internet, I saw lots of great Recycled Toys ideas for Halloween! Here are some of my favorites!

The Long Thread had some great ideas:
Paper bag paper mache pumpkin bowls
A sweet mobile of bats from the Long thread

Skull lights made from milk containers, electrical tape, and little lights from dollarstorecrafts.com (This website really rocks, by the way).

And, of course, Martha came through for us with this cute one: Aluminum can jack o lantern luminaries!
